Take, Lord, receive all our liberty
Our memory, understanding, Our entire will.
Give us only your love and your grace, that's enough for us
Your love and your grace are enough for us.
Take, Lord, receive all we have and possess.
You have given all to us, now we return it.
Take, Lord, receive, all is yours now
Dispose of it wholly according to your will.
(Adapted from the song Take Lord Receive by Fr. John Foley, SJ)
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P.
A prayer or two to help you through your day!
